    arghhh so frustrating!

    1st time, fair enough I got 3 serious.

    2nd time was my best shot. I forgot to look right on a mini roundabout. it was on a straight road, there was no markings on the ground and I probably missed the sign for it. that was my only serious.

    3rd Time, I stalled on a little hill and couldn't find the biting point. I think the nerves got the best of me. I was driving 30 on a 40 road and apparently that was slow. so 2 serious.

    Anyone else had the same experience and managed to get over it because it's soul crushing to hear 'you've failed' for the third time'.

    Seriously, I feel like giving up. So much money spent on tests and driving lessons. I'm a pretty confident and calm driver, but these tests just bring my nerves out and I can't control them.

    so any advice for my next test?

    Sounds like your nervous! It's natural to be nervous, but keep those nerves to a minimum! Also, your examiner is human, like yourself, so don't be afraid to calm yourself down by having a friendly chat with them!

    This thread should be in the Learning to drive forum. I'll just tag AngryJellyfish to get this moved over there

    Its a high standard and not easy under pressure. Keep practicing, keep calm, concentrate like mad. Everyone gets there.
